Patient Safety Is Not Elective

A Debate at the 16th Annual NPSF Patient Safety Congress
The question of whether certain patient safety practices should be considered inviolable, with violators subject to penalties potentially including fines, suspensions, or loss of their jobs, was the topic of a debate at the 16th Annual National Patient Safety Foundation Patient Safety Congress, held in May 2014. Gregg S. Meyer, MD, MSc, chief clinical officer, Partners HealthCare, defended the focus on systems as the best use of resources to advance patient safety. Robert M. Wachter, MD, chief of the Division of Hospital Medicine, University of California, San Francisco, argued that leaders must address individuals who choose to disregard established safety rules. Each took his respective position for the purposes of debate only.
